Diebold to show Opteva® 121 Statement Printer at CeBIT 2005

Noncash terminal offers minimal investment, compact footprint, and customer convenience

(HANOVER) - Diebold, Incorporated will demonstrate its dedication to the European market when it shows its Opteva® 121 statement printer during CeBIT at the Hanover Convention Centre from 10th to 16th March 2005.

The Opteva 121 is a Diebold custom-built solution that was developed to meet the specific needs of the European market. Financial institutions in this market often prefer to segment automated teller machines (ATMs) according to their function, providing enhanced customer convenience through the use of separate machines for cash withdrawal, statement printing and advanced functions. The Opteva 121 enables customers to print statements and execute fund transfers at a separate terminal provided exclusively for these functions.

Henrik Funch, division vice president for Diebold Europe-Middle East-Africa (EMEA), said the Opteva 121 is a demonstration of Diebold’s commitment to the European market. "This terminal is truly a reflection of the needs of this market," Funch said. "Diebold’s primary focus is to provide the solutions that meet the needs of our customers."

With its small footprint, the Opteva 121 was designed for lobby installations and is ideal for bank branches, off-premises locations, transportation centres and corporate facilities. As with all members of the Opteva family, the Opteva 121 is powered by Agilis®, Diebold’s open software platform that allows multiple vendors’ terminals and their respective technologies to co-exist.

The design of the Opteva 121 makes it easy for customers to add to their existing ATM networks. Using Diebold’s Agilis software, the non-cash terminal can be enhanced to include Web-enabled functionality, downloading inquiry, electronic purse and access to a financial institution’s product and services offerings. The thermal printer, which offers full graphics, provides a dual feed for added customer convenience. The printer can output onto fan-fold or rolled paper formats, or can print on a card inserted by the customer.

"We are confident this unit will help our customers meet their business goals and provide added convenience to their customers," Funch said. "We listened to our customers when we created the Opteva family, and the Opteva 121 shows we’re still listening."
